Subject: Wow
Nice to find the Sheiks again. Used to see them at the Freeze Dried Coffehouse at SUNY Albany when they swung up that way. Even had the pleasure of being called up as an audience participant for one of Bert Lee's magic tricks.

Track 3 is really 'Mr. Blake' though its easy to see why one might come up with the title listed. Will see if I can add any others as I listen to this...

Track 5, with the Roches, is 'Angel Band'
Track 6, Up on the Mountain, is really 'Wind in the Willows'
Not sure about the instrumentals, but there are one or two on Honeysuckle Rose (where most of the other titles are coming from) so they might be found yet...
Track 8 'One Bar to Another' is really "The Memory of your Smile"
Track 17 is "The Prize"

The others will require a bit more detective work.
